ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Following a chase, car crash, and police K9 search, a man has been taken into custody for his alleged involvement in a June homicide case that left one man dead and another injured.
The man, Jason Premo, 41, was arrested early Monday morning, according to a community alert from the Anchorage Police Department.
Premo was involved in a shooting altercation, police say, that led to the death of Geoffrey Sorden, 48. That case, police say, took place in June at a home on Austin Street in Anchorage.
Premo and Sorden allegedly entered a home, and got into a fight with the homeowner. Police say Sorden shot the homeowner, and the homeowner shot back, killing Sorden. Premo fled the scene.
A manslaughter warrant was issued for Permo earlier this month, and was served today following his arrest.
According to APD, the arrest took place this morning after they spotted a "suspicious vehicle" and tried to pull it over. It didn't stop, APD said.
The driver of the car eluded police, but crashed the vehicle into a pole on 36th Avenue and Patterson Street, taking off from the crash on foot.
Police called in a K9, which tracked the scene to a shed in a nearby area. The person inside was Jason Premo, police say, who was arrested after first refusing to come out, but later surrendering.
